Volunteer Programs



Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with the International Humanity Foundation. IHF is a unique organization, functioning almost entirely through the efforts of our volunteers from all over the world. Our volunteers give their time, skills, energy, and love to help our family in Kenya, Thailand, and Indonesia.


For Short-Term Volunteers



Starting at $200 per week (including accommodation and three meals per day), Legacy Traveller Volunteers are magnanimous individuals with a wish to combine their passion for helping others with the opportunity to immerse themselves within the local culture and scenic beauty which surrounds our center’s.

Our projects are in some of the most historic and traditional parts of the developing world. Volunteers can choose from:

  • spending their time visiting temples in Thailand
  • taking safaris in Kenya
  • observing orangutans in the jungles of North Sumatra
  • island hoping off the coast of Jakarta
  • or relaxing at the beaches, spa’s and restaurants of Bali


Each of our Centers offer a unique and fascinating tourism experience with something for every traveller. More importantly volunteers gain peace of mind that not only are you giving back to our centers through the donation of your skills and your time, but that the fees for your stay go directly towards funding of our programs and local outreach projects. We promote truly responsible tourism.



Starting at $100 per week, Legacy volunteers are open-minded individuals looking to gain meaningful experience working in the development sector. Volunteers will have the opportunity to contribute to the success of local programs whilst simultaneously gaining an appreciation of the operations of an international NGO. Volunteers will participate in one or more of the divisions which make up the International Humanity Foundation, working with other like-minded people at-home and across our 5 centres.

Legacy volunteers are typically individuals with in interest in travel, who are looking to experience living and working in country for an extended period and who would like to gain a boost to their careers or CV’s. For those applicants still in full or part-time education, as an accredited US 501(c)(3) organisation, if required IHF will work with your university or course director to help ensure you receive course credit and certification on completion of your stay.

All Legacy Volunteers have an opportunity to explore local tourist attractions and to gain an understanding of the challenges that affect the users of our centers. Volunteers are encouraged to leave a mark on their chosen center though their Legacy Project(s) and though an ongoing cultural exchange between themselves and the community, which is a major part of their stay.

To see which of our centers and their specific projects will best fit your academic or professional background, check out our Center Program Guides below:

By choosing our Legacy Volunteer Program you will combine international travel with real world experience, the opportunity to make friends from across the world at the center and by joining IHFs network of professional alumni, and the chance to impact the lives of the people we serve.



Fees are negotiable and dependent on applicant’s professional skills and background

The Professional Legacy Program is aimed at individuals who would like to share their professional skills or industry experience with IHF and our centres for the benefit of the centers family.

Through our other programs we aim to develop our volunteers, providing them with the experience necessary for working towards a career in international development or similar profession. There are some specialist skills we are unable to provide through our volunteer development program, for these we reach out to Professional Associations and industry partners who provide us with caring individuals who would like to share their skills and expertise with a non-profit. Working in conjunction with IHF though the use of our centers convenient locations, local knowledge and contacts to provide vital services to the communities we work with. When not supporting real change locally, Professional Legacy volunteers have the chance to explore sights around our centers locations being guided towards some of the best tourism experiences the world has to offer.

Contact our Volunteer Team with details of your professional skills and background, where you would be interested in visiting and your proposed date and before you arrive we will work with our teams on the ground to set-up your Speciality Project, ensuring you are able to maximize your impact through IHF.
